Lugu Camps 2: Xinxing School

Now that we’re all home after a week at Lugu Lake, it’s time to sort through our photos and upload some of the best. The second half of our Lugu project was just as rewarding as the first — two days of teaching at two separate schools, a Muoso school at Wenquan and a predominantly Yi school at Xinxing, both in the mountains behind Lugu Lake. At Xinxing, members of the surrounding village also decided to get involved — you can see a few of them here clapping and dancing with the band. Stay tuned for a Flickr album.

About unitymp

The Unity Rural Music Project was initiated in February 2010 by two Fulbright scholars conducting research in Chengdu. Our mission is to address issues of education development in rural China by organizing a series of music-themed summer camps in Sichuan and Guangxi Provinces. Through these camps, we will provide participating schools with instruments, textbooks and teacher training, helping them lay the foundation for sustainable music programs of their own. Additionally, the camps will provide a valuable opportunity for cultural exchange between students and instructors, providing students a chance to learn and interact with musicians and role models from urban China and abroad.
